Dr. Bowden is an amazing doctor. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He listens to all of my concerns and answers all of my questions. Dr. Bowden has a true desire to do the right thing for each and every patient and it shows with the care he provides us. :) The only down side is that it is difficult to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bowden. There are soo many people that want him as a doctor that his calendar is always booked up. Yes, he is that good! :)

After examining many possible solutions, Dr. Bowden confimed that the most likely cure for my pain is back surgery. I've scheduled it (with another doc) for July, but Bowden asked that I keep in touch after for any further help with procedures or medication.

My first visit was a telemed appt and I was very impressed with Dr. Bowden's caring attitude. My second appt was for an SI Joint injection that was pretty much painless. The staff was friendly, informative and professional. I've recommended this practice to a friend and will continue to refer others. Thank you! Joyce
